Les Petits Cypres is tucked away less than a kilometre from a small market town which has a pretty church, cultural centre, shops and restaurants. The villa’s spacious grounds are lined by walls, hedges, and trees amongst which those iconic cypresses stand like sentinels. There’s a pool, terrace, oleander framed tennis court and plenty of remaining space for exploring, playing games or simply sitting with a glass of wine beneath the olive trees.
Step inside to find an atmosphere of tranquillity and simplicity, enhanced by the sliding glass doors, white walls and light floor tiles of the living area which has everything you need for a relaxing stay. There are three comfortably furnished bedrooms, one overlooking the sparkling pool and the third more privately situated on the first floor, accessed by an elegantly curved, wooden staircase. There is also an interesting upstairs gallery area where books can be quietly read or activity below overlooked.
The location is an ideal starting point for exploring so many of the amazingly varied landscapes, wonderful towns and villages of Provence and there just won’t be time to see everything! You could start with the easy drive to beautiful Avignon, a designated UNESCO World Heritage site renowned for its architectural beauty. It’s definitely worth travelling slightly further afield to visit the extraordinarily picturesque hilltop villages in the mountain ranges of the Luberon.
Don’t forget to head southwards towards Les Alpilles Natural Park with its idyllic villages, vineyards and well renowned towns such as St-Rémy-de-Provence. There are plenty of walking trails in the area as well as opportunities for trekking, riding and mountain cycling. You may prefer to visit the surrounding vineyards and olive groves in a leisurely fashion and sample some of the fine produce of the region.
You shouldn’t return home without visiting the wonderful city of Arles, known for its fine architecture and Roman remains. Drive onwards towards the wonders of La Camargue with its wild landscape, beaches, lagoons, pink flamingos and galloping white horses. So many activities can be found here ranging from riding, trekking and quad biking to jeep tours across this fascinating landscape.

Set back from the road and sheltered by trees, Les Petits Cypres is situated in an agricultural and partially residential area less than a kilometre from a small market town which has a lovely church, cultural centre and jewellery and marquetry workshops.
It’s an easy drive from here to the historic city of Avignon (8km), set on the Rhône River and designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. It was under Papal rule for many centuries until it became part of France in 1791 - the massive Palais des Papes can still be admired in the city centre.
Head southwards and you will soon reach the vineyards, idyllic villages and world-renowned towns of Les Alpilles Natural Park. St-Rémy-de-Provence (14km) is popular with artists, many of whom live in the area and display or sell their works of art in the village’s art galleries. Carry on heading south towards Les Baux-de-Provence (21km), classified as one of France’s 'Plus Beaux Villages' with its pretty squares, narrow streets, little shops and a fortified-château. There are some beautiful walking trails around the village and beyond or simply head to the surrounding vineyards and olive groves and sample some of the fine produce of the region. While you are in the area, don’t forget to visit Eygalières (25km), one of the prettiest hilltop villages in Provence.
Eastwards from Les Petits Cypres lie the three majestic Luberon mountain ranges which rise between the Alpes de Haute Provence and the Vaucluse plain. This area is characterised by a series of exceptionally picturesque villages perched on the hillsides such as Gordes (38km) and Lacoste (42km). Lush vegetation and an exceptional variety of wildlife are to be found in the whole of this regional nature park, all of which are made accessible by the many hiking paths.
You shouldn’t return home without travelling south-west towards the wonderful city of Arles (30km), known for its fine architecture and Roman remains. Drive onwards towards the wonders of La Camargue (47km) with its beaches, lagoons, galloping white horses and pink flamingos. So many activities can be found here ranging from riding, trekking and quad biking to jeep tours across this fascinating landscape.

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!
Carrières de Lumières (20km) is a former quarry near Les Baux-de-Provence which hosts art based multimedia shows projecting images of famous paintings set to music onto the walls of the old quarry.
Further artistic interest is provided by the Van Gogh walk in St-Rémy-de Provence (14km), a round trip through the countryside showing some of the wonderful landscapes which inspired the famous painter. While you are here, visit the nearby archaeological site of Glanum where the remains of the ancient wealthy city lie in a magnificent setting below a gorge on the side of the Alpilles mountains.
Thrill seekers should try out kayaking along the Sorgue (20km) or hire canoes by the magnificent Pont du Gard, near Nimes (44km). This part of Provence also offers wonderful trails for walking, cycling and horse-riding.
Young and old train lovers alike will adore the model railway, the JardiTrain, just south of Carpentras (32km). For a full day out, the adventurous will enjoy the fantastic Tree-Top activity centre in Salon-de-Provence (48km) while just a few kilometres south-east of Salon-de-Provence is Zoo La Barben (61km) which has over 600 species of animals.
